Hillary Can Show Bernie How to Lose With Grace

Despite repeated pummelings - four more losses Tuesday night, including a blowout in Pennsylvania - Bernie Sanders still can't find the high road on his mental GPS. He's still steamed that Democrats have the temerity to run Democrats-only primaries (he's not even a Democrat), says he's gonna win in irrelevant West Virginia on May 10, and continue to battle at the convention to the bitter end.

Yes Prince Faisal, We Need to 'Recalibrate' Our Relationship

For decades the U.S. and Saudi Arabia have shared a peculiar relationship: the Saudis sell relatively cheap oil to the United States for which they accept our fiat currency. They then recycle those paper dollars into the U.S. military-industrial complex through the purchase of billions of dollars worth of military equipment, and the U.S. guarantees the security of the Saudi monarchy.

Gender Chaos in an XX-XY World

We live in a country where people think it's okay for has-been rock stars to cancel concerts because of their beliefs, but it's not okay for bakers, florists and photographers to do the same.

Turns Out Trump is Right a Lot

As evidenced by his hair, Donald J. Trump is pretty much wrong all the time. Every time. About everything. Except when he isn't. One example is, should he become president, Mexico indeed will build a wall - to control our immigration. "Get me the hell out of here. Por favor?" Hell, Canada might have to build one as well. "Hey, let me in dere, ya hoser. S'il vous plait, eh?"

What Did Fed Chairman Yellen Tell Obama?

Last week, President Obama and Vice President Biden held a hastily arranged secret meeting with Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen. According to the one paragraph statement released by the White House following the meeting, Yellen, Obama, and Biden simply "exchanged notes" about the economy and the progress of financial reform. Because the meeting was held behind closed doors, the American people have no way of knowing what else the three might have discussed.

From Obama to Trump: What We’ve Lost in Just 12 Years

Back in July 2004, when I was a (somewhat) younger political reporter, I was standing in the rafters of the old Fleet Bank Center in Boston listening to an unknown politician deliver a pretty extraordinary speech to the Democratic National Convention.
